The City of Arbyrd has a rich history in the Missouri Bootheel. The first post office in Arbyrd was established in 1911 and the town incorporated in 1919, becoming a fourth class city in 1937. The town got its name from A.R. Byrd, a land speculator from St. Louis who purchased 4000 acres in the area.
The early school system was the home of the Tigers before it was consolidated with Cardwell Missouri. A scholarship fund has been established (Remember the Tigers) to help new graduates.
Arbyrd is home to one manufacturing facility, one grocery store, one car wash, and a farm implement store. The current population is just less than 500.
Arbyrd is 17 miles south of Kennett Missouri, on Highway 108 just off Highway 412.
